It is said that practice makes perfect, but what else does practice make? If you ask Joe Paprocki, hell say that practice makes Catholicthat is, there are certain distinct practices that make us essentially Catholic. The problem is that many Catholics dont understandor at least misunderstandwhy we engage in the many practices we do. In Practice Makes Catholic, Paprocki addresses the all-important why of many Catholic practices by articulating five key characteristics that form our Catholic identity: a sense of sacramentality, a commitment to community, a respect for the dignity of human life and commitment to justice, a reverence for Tradition, and a disposition to faith and hope rather than despair. Under each of these categories, he explores and explains multiple Catholic practices, then describes how following each one can make a profound difference in our faith and in our lives. Informative and inviting, Practice Makes Catholic is the perfect resource for RCIA candidates and their sponsors, for Catholics returning to the faith, and for all Catholics who want to get to the heart of what their faith is really about.
